New Written Arguments Presented At Prop 8/ Perry v Schwarzenengger Trial – Bigots Grasp At Straws And The Craziness Continues To Flow

Lawyers in the first federal trial to examine whether state bans on same-sex marriages are constitutional have submitted new written arguments to the judge who will decide the case.

Chief U.S. Judge Vaughn Walker requested the briefs summarizing the respective sides’ evidence to help him prepare for closing arguments.

In papers filed late Friday, lawyers for the sponsors of California’s gay marriage ban offered new twists on their claim that allowing gay men and lesbians to wed could undermine man-woman unions

“Californians voted for Proposition 8 because they thought it would strengthen the institution of marriage (and) … because they thought it would benefit children,” (Blah, blah, blah)

 But get this.  The “new” reasons they cite is that legalizing gay marriage can lead to giving bisexuals a legal basis for pursuing group marriages and unmarried fathers an incentive to abandon their children..

And they have the nerve to call us fruitcakes.
